When will scholarship recipients be announced?

All scholarship decisions will be made by June 30th, and all applicants will be notified by letter of the decisions. There is a selection committee, comprised of volunteers, for each scholarship fund. The committee reviews the applications while taking into account the scholarship’s eligibility and selection criteria, such as enrollment at a particular high school, financial need, academic performance, extracurricular activities, community service or other talents.
